Payments power to take your business anywhere

Whether you’re new to taking payments or want to switch to something for seasonal trading, Smartpay Anywhere is a great solution to start with. 

More specifically, if you’re a taxi driver, tradesperson or a retailer, here are just a few ways it could benefit your business.

Designed with your business in mind

Taxi drivers

Fed-up of hunting down ATMs for cashless customers? With Smartpay Anywhere, they can pay their taxi fare by card or with a digital wallet.

You’ll then be able to send them a receipt by email with a few taps on the app. And that money could be in your account the very next business day.*

If that sounds ideal for you, you can apply here.

Taxi drivers


Get paid straight away with no waiting or chasing. If your customers don’t have cash to hand, they can pop the payment on their card.

Smartpay Anywhere can also help you keep track of all your sales and email receipts to save time.

Sound like it’s the solution for you? You can apply for it here.


Don’t miss a sale because your customers don’t have cash – with Smartpay Anywhere, they can pay with their card or digital wallet.

You can also add multiple products to the basket on the app and even pop on a discount. When you’ve put the sale through, send your customer an email receipt in just a few taps.
